George McClary, CCAS PhD ’69, of Richmond, VA, passed away in September 2013 at the age of 90.
Dr. McClary joined the Richmond school system in 1952 and retired in 1987, when he was serving as director of pupil services and special education.
“Much honored for his professional work, he was a leader during the early era of school guidance counseling, chairing a national commission that developed a statement of the role and function of the school guidance counselor. He also helped a national committee develop a statement describing the role of the administrator of pupil personnel services,” writes Ellen Robertson in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Dr. McClary graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Richmond in 1949. He then earned a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Pennsylvania State University in 1954 and his doctorate from GW in 1969.
Survivors include two sisters, Jean Stephenson of Newport News and Grace O’Connell of Richmond.
